Sunshine On Leith

Join us to see the King’s go out on a high before the theatre closes to undergo an exciting redevelopment, reopening in 2024!

With a soundtrack from world-renowned Leithers The Proclaimers, Sunshine on Leith is both a funny and moving story about Davy and Ally, two soldiers from Edinburgh returning to their hometown after serving in war-torn countries, who are questioning what ‘home’ really means. This is a fresh new production of an audience favourite which is sure to delight yet again.

Features hits I’m On My Way, Letter from America, I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles) and of course the title song Sunshine on Leith.
